Champagne. A sparkling wine like no other.

What makes Champagne so special?

Is it the celebratory excitement of popping a champagne cork, or is it because it’s the most prestigious sparkling wine in the world?

Linked with royalty, privilege and celebration throughout the world. There is only one Champagne.

I thought I knew about wine, but have enjoyed and learnt so much more from the tastings of FWS. A great mix of education and fun!

French Wine School tastings have been a life saver in locked-down Victoria 2020. The attractive visual format enabled friends and family to come together and the presentations expanded our palates and understanding of French wine regions and varieties. We felt like we had taken a brief holiday in Burgundy, Champagne and Provence. A total delight.

Really enjoyed the virtual tasting. It was a good introduction to wines I haven’t had before. Great selection of wines. The background information was good for providing context to enhance the tasting. Looking forward to the next one.
